Mazza, 15, has been going to the same camp, Camp Mend-A-Heart, since she was 9 because it’s the only camp that she and her family can trust to keep her safe.

Mazza has a contegential heart defect, which means she was born with an abnormally structured heart. Physical activities are difficult for her.
